It is sad if the radiation from Fukishima is truly affecting the citizens, but this is the result of human nature. We choose to play with fire, and
get burnt. We'll keep getting burnt and burnt and even burn others in our own attempts to tame it, we'll know no bounds. And eventually that fire
becomes ours, and now we carry it around nonchalantly in our pockets unaware of the labour and pain that lead to it.
The same goes for nuclear energy. We WILL master fusion, and we WILL make fission relatively safe (everything has a risk no matter how small). But it
will take mistakes, and lives, and more mistakes, and more lives, and just like fire, one day it'll probably be just like a lighter to our offspring,
normal everyday technology. It's sad and beautiful at the same time isn't it?
It's just a matter of time. I work for a nuclear engineering company and there are projects involving designing safety systems in case of a Fukishima
style event or worse. Atleast the positive consequences of Fukishima are in motion as well, and we take another little leap towards 'perfection'.
We all suffer for causes we'll never understand, and through that give back to something we'll never know. If it wasn't meant to be like this, it
wouldn't have been.
